I personally like T-Bones,NY Strips, and Filet Mengions(sp?). T-bones make a nice thick steak. Filet Mengions are really juicy and full of flavor. First thing's first though, you've gotta marinate those babies!!! I get some nice cuts from the local meat market (they're usually cheaper than the grocery store too, and the quality is much better). Then i marinate them at least 2 days before i want to cook them (if you don't have time, a few hours will do.) Depending on what i have in my kitchen at the time, i usually use a combination of the following(but not all at once....it just depends on what i have in my kitchen at the time): Terriaki sauce, Soy sauce, sea salt, peper, meat tenderizer( can be used instead of salt, but just a pinch if you marinate it a few days in advance). Sweet Chilie Sauce (can be purchased at a local asian market for around $4), a pinch of garlic powder, a pinch of spices....whatever i have at the time....rosemary, parsley, cilantro...., beer or wine- just a pinch, orange juice give a nice flavor too, any combination of these should make for an excellent steak...it's not a bad idea to mix a tiny bit of each that sounds good to you in a little bowl and taste it before you marinate your steaks, that way you know what to expect when they're done. Then pour the marinade into a tupperware container, add the steaks, pour more marinade over them and then put them in the fridge to marinate until you're ready to cook them. There are several different ways to cook a steak- the best is on a grill! (The key to cooking on a grill is to make sure they don't stick and to rotate them every few minutes so both sides are even ( i like mine medium well). The new "Pam" for grilling works very well. you spray it on the grill before you get started (and please, before you light it!!!) . Remember, a little goes a Long way. It helps to have a pair of grilling tongs to rotate the steaks with. If you don't have a grill and you want to make steaks inside, you need to broil them in the oven. Good luck, if you need any more help let me know. I hope you win the bet with your husband!!! Happy Grilling!
